At the end of the third quarter, asset prices for German households were -1.5% lower than in the prior-year quarter. For German assets, this is the first price decline since 2009, after asset prices had risen continuously, driven in part by the monetary policy of the European Central Bank.
At mid-year, prices for private household assets in the Euro area continued to rise, while at the same time signs of a trend reversal are clearly discernible. While real estate prices in the Euro area were still defying the changed conditions at mid-year, prices for business wealth, equities and bonds fell significantly. While asset prices actually declined in Finland, they rose significantly in Portugal and the Netherlands at mid-year.
The FvS Konjunkturindikator (FvS-KI) maps the actual economic activity in Germany on a monthly basis, based on a set of hard real economic data. On the basis of the FvS-KI we carry out business cycle dating for Germany.
